Counting On star, Jana Duggar isn’t stressed about getting married despite being the only adult Duggar sister that is still single.

The 30-year-old does admit she longs to be married like her siblings. Jana is hopeful will find her person someday but isn’t sweating it right now. Her mindset is interesting considering the famous family is all about courtship, marriage, and babies.

“I’m not that worried. Yes, I long to be married, and one day I think that will come, I think. I’m just also just trying to stay busy with whatever comes along my path,” she said to the weekly magazine alongside her mother, Michelle Duggar

Jana does feel pressure to get married. Her sisters were all married at a young age. Plus, Jana’s twin brother, John-David is married and welcomed his first child, daughter Gracie, earlier this year.

She doesn’t sit there and let the pressure build-up or get to her. Jana is focused on making the best of her single days and embracing them until she finds her match.

“I think if I sit there and I’m like, ‘Oh no, I’m not married’ and just get all worried about it, it makes things way worse,” Jana shared.

The TLC personality admitted she has been in plenty of courtships, but nothing turned to marriage. Jana also expressed a lot of her siblings were in other courtships before finding their current partners.
